We have raised an amazing £62,982 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge! We narrowly missed our £70,500 target but we will also receive £4,709 in Gift Aid, making a grand total of over £67,000, which is incredible.
We are immensely grateful to all of the donors who contributed (including the CHK Foundation, Topinambour Trust, Garden Court Chambers, Schusterman Foundation and over 80 individuals), as well as all our supporters who helped spread the word.
This funding will support the costs of our transformational coaching programme The Conversation Systems Coaching Programme ® (The Conversation), which coaches prison staff and people in prison together to improve the culture on prison wings. At a time when violence, assaults and self-harm in UK prisons are at record highs, this intervention is even more critical yet the government funding is increasingly limited.
